Hedden had barricaded himself in his apartment at around 3 a.m. when police responded to a call from Hedden's girlfriend during an argument. Officers arrived to see both Hedden and the woman outside in an argument. Hedden then went inside and did not come out. After the woman warned police of Hedden owning several guns, Opelousas police officers and Louisiana State Police officers surrounded the complex.
